I had a big long post prepared today describing my life long love of art, drawing, and photography. I read it through and even I felt bored to tears. Yikes I can't have that.
I'll try to touch on a few of the interesting things. I have always loved drawing since I was very little. Over the years my creativity has led me down many paths and sometimes life has pulled me off those paths. Some of my favourite creative pursuits have been drawing/sketching, water colour painting, calligraphy, photography, (are you really surprised?) sewing, home decor, and of course scrapbooking. I started with paper scrapbooking and I think that is reflected in my digi scrapbooking even now. I have been digi scrapbooking for two years and I have ended up loving it even more than paper scrapbooking. I'm not sure why because sometimes I do miss the feel of the paper and the full textures. I don't miss the supplies covering my living room table though. I do intend to do a bit more hybrid scrapping in the new year but for now I'm very content with what I'm doing.
Over the last year I found myself often creating items for my pages. At first I did it to say that I could. Then when I knew I could, I would only create my own things if I couldn't find what I had in my mind in any of the digi stores. Then a month ago I began to think, maybe others would like what I make too, hmmmm I think I'd like to take this designing a little more seriously. This month has been like a month of rediscovery for me. I haven't drawn in ages. I had wondered if my drawing ability disappeared with the birth of my first child but apparently it was only lying dormant. I had totally forgotten how much I love drawing. Who knows where things will go from here but I'm glad that I've been able to create some cool things that people are enjoying.
I really am truly overwhelmed with the response and support of my design work thus far. Thank you everyone so much for taking the time to visit me, comment and download my designs. Please do drop in and let me know if you create anything with my designs, I'd love to see.
